    Ah the great Aloe Vera. I just got a jumbo leaf from my Mother’s neighbour. Lol. For some reason they don’t grow well in my mom’s yard and I have no space for plants in my apartment. Unless I grow it in a pot. So for now, my mom’s neighbour it is! Quite insightful. Thank you!

    Thanks for this very informative post. I’ve loved these plants, I have to bring mine inside for winter and have a hard time keeping them happy. Maybe I over watered when they need to dry out more.

    Nice article! I love aloe plants. Mines keep seeming to dry it up though. Like all the routes die. Does that mean I’m watering it too much or not enough?
